The Constituent Assembly of the Republic of the Philippines more commonly known as CON–ASS will be the joint meeting of both houses of the Congress of the Philippines which composes of the House of Representatives and the Senate that will propose amendments to the Constitution of the Philippines following the passage by the House of Representatives of House Resolution No. 1109 on June 2, 2009 by viva voce in a move to shift the government from the current presidential to parliamentary. All amendments would need the approval of three-fourths (¾) approval of Congress. This is my reason why i joined "NO to Con-Ass"The said approval of House Bill 1109 empowered or gave authority to the Congress to organize a Constituent Assembly, where members of the House and the Senate could vote jointly to amend the 1987 Constitution.
So that is why some of the small and big sectors around the country have joined each other and encouraged individuals to buy a whistle or wear a red ribbon on June 10 and hit the streets in protest against the convening of a Constituent Assembly (ConAss).
As a sign of participation i will place this badge into my sidebar.
